New York Times bestselling author of If I Am Missing or Dead and board member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors.
Before I discovered Scrivener I used index cards and thumb tacks to find the narrative arc of a piece. Audio tapes were in one shoe box, my videos were filed somewhere else, the photos I use to capture details were somewhere else still. Now everything’s in one place on my computer, linked and intuitively accessible. For a recent project I moved my scenes around, flowed them into one document, rearranged them, reflowed them, until I found the project’s shape. No cut-and-paste-and-find-where-you-were-going-to-put-it! Scrivener is a tremendous tool that frees my brain up to be creative, and it’s a lot easier to take on the road than a bulletin board full of index cards.
